Tried & Tested: 8 Week Eyelash Extensions

Our BBH tester went for eyelash extensions and has discovered that Lash Perfect Russian Varia lashes stand the test of time

From Russia with Love: Russian Varia full set

It’s called Russian Varia and costs a cool £100. But wait… before you click off the page, let me assert from now that these are by far the longest lasting lashes I’ve ever experienced having – and the best bit; it got better over time.

Are you still with me? When it comes to hair extensions, Russian hair often comes top of the list, and the same goes for eyelash extensions. What you get with this new treatment, exclusive to Lash Perfect Lash Bar, is a multi-lash layering technique that gives you different lengths and thickness. The end results are volumised lashed that really stand out – and I mean really stand out.

I’ll be honest, when I opened my drowsy eyes which had been closed for an hour – the treatment time is two hours, but I was late and my technician was super quick – it was a bit of an ‘uh oh’ moment. These lashes were very full, very dark and very fake. If you wear strip eyelashes then I don’t think the reveal will come as a shock to you, but I on the other hand, occasionally wear individual lashes, and even then I opt for the half set.

But with encouragement from my colleagues and friends I persevered. Some of the comments were ‘It looks glamorous and will look great on a night out’, ‘It looks natural and can pass as yours’, ‘It’s not that bad what are you fussing over?’

Here’s a quick diary of how I came to love these lashes:

Week 1Took a lot of getting used to

Week 2Noticed that I didn’t lose a single lash and they were easy to care for

 Week 3Still looked full and I was enjoying having pretty eyes that didn’t need make-up

Week 4Started to take less care and the lashes were still holding on

Week 5Continued to receive compliments

Week 6Thinning out but looking really natural

Week 7Hairs were falling away but thanks to the thickness, it didn’t look like spider legs

Week 8Still a good number of lashes that look soft, light and graduated

In the end these lashes really came good for me. OK, I felt like a TOWIE cast member in the beginnng, but the high impact meant that the lashes stayed luscious for longer. Again, some may not be fazed by this and if you like dramatic eyes then this is for you!

    I like using castor oil for hair growth but sometimes it gets in my eyes so, I decided to try something new. Dermal MD Eyelash Growth Serum felt very lightweight, didn't sting and made my lashes feel soft & moisturized. I liked it more then castor oil!
